Updated 2016 ACC Tournament bracket after first round


A look at the updated 2016 ACC Tournament bracket after the first round games

The first round of the 2016 ACC Tournament is now in the books, meaning that college basketball fans are one step closer to finding out who will earn the auto-bid out of one of the most prestigious conferences in the sport. Moreover, fans are one step closer to the best time of year in regards to March Madness.

The first round of the ACC Tournament got underway on Tuesday afternoon as the No. 12 NC State Wolfpack took on the No. 13 Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The game was a back-and-forth affair for the entire 40 minutes, but it was ultimately Cat Barber and NC State that emerged to the second round where they will play the No. 5 Duke Blue Devils on Wednesday.

In the second first-round matchup, the No. 11 Florida State Seminoles took on the No. 14 Boston College Golden Eagles on Tuesday afternoon and, unfortunately for the latter team, their winless record in the ACC for the regular season carried into the ACC Tournament as the Seminoles ran away with the contest to advance. Florida State will take on the No. 6 Virginia Tech Hokies on Wednesday in the second round.
